Grand Isle Monday

Fished Grand Isle on Sunday and Monday with my son and a friend. Fished Lake Palourde on Sunday (windy) and picked up 15 nice trout, with live shrimp and vudu shrimp about 2' under poppin cork. Shut in down around noon to meet friends coming into town. Went out Monday and fished the marsh just north of Grand Isle and managed 40 good trout. We probably caught 150 trout but MANY tiny trout!! The boys fished live shrimp till we ran out, I fished vudu all day. Picked up a couple bull reds, several rat reds and big black drum along the way. The vudu fished just as well as the live shrimp and you didn't have to deal with the small trout nearly as much.

Fished the birds some as they came through feeding on shrimp but most caught off points in 3-4' of moving water.
Nice mess of fish, good report
